After the heart-breaking loss in the first game against the Dindigul Dragons, the Chepauk Super Gillies were back on track in their last match. Against the Ruby Trichy Warriors, they won by a 41-margin to register the first win of the tournament. This victory would have come as a huge sigh of relief for the Gillies after the terrible 2018 season where they just won one game.
It’d be ideal for them to build upon this momentum and register a few more wins. On the other hand, things have gone the other way for Karaikudi Kaalai. After just about winning their first game, the side was bowled out for a paltry 67 in the previous encounter versus VB Kanchi Veerans. Thus, they will clearly look to get back on track and this should be an exciting contest.
The 9th match of the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2019 will be played between Chepauk Super Gillies and Karaikudi Kaalai at the Indian Cement Company Ground, Tirunelveli.
The match starts at 7:15 PM local time (IST) (1:45 PM GMT).
This game will be live on Star Sports and live streaming is available on Hotstar.
In both the games played thus far in this season in Tirunelveli, the side batting first seemed to have a clear advantage. Batting in the second innings seems to get quite tough and thus toss could play a major role in deciding the winner of this match.
